The Baltimore Ravens enter the 2015 season with one of the strongest rosters in the National Football League. They were in position to beat the New England Patriots in the playoffs last season, but came up empty because of the lack of depth in the secondary.
The Ravens are set at some positions with some of the best in the business. Forget the debate about whether he is elite or not, Joe Flacco is the man in Baltimore. Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil make up the best one-two punch of pass rushers in the game.

They are not as elite at other positions, but do have depth all throughout the roster. The offense has a good mix of veterans and young players that are capable of scoring at any moment. All three running backs bring something unique to the table. The tight ends are young, but showed a lot of promise in the first preseason game. The Ravens have receivers who create matchup problems. The offensive line is terrific as well.
The starting group on defense is strong as always. They will be very stout in the middle which has been a stable of a Baltimore Ravens team. Like any other team, they have weaknesses as well. The Ravens are not a flawless team as they do have question marks at some positions. Few teams enter a season a complete package, and you could say I am knit-picking with the few weaknesses they have.
This is football we are talking about and injuries do happen. At any moment, someone could go down and the depth takes a hit. The Ravens have already lost two players who figured to have big seasons with the biceps injury to Matt Elam and Brent Urban.
